World's glaciers melting at faster pace, study says
Telegraph, 29 Apr 2021
Nearly all of the world's glaciers are losing mass and at an accelerated pace, according to a new study that could impact future projection models for ice loss.
The study in the science journal Nature provides one of the most wide-ranging overviews yet of ice mass loss from about 220,000 glaciers around the world, a major source of sea level rise.
The study could fill important gaps in understanding about ice mass loss, leading to more accurate predictions, said co-author of the study Robert McNabb, a remote sensing scientist at Ulster University in the UK.
